Hi Richard,

I see here http://www.cluecan.ca/flexinode/table/1 that there are
Ubuntu Groups in Toronto and Quebec:


I'm sure if you contacted them, they'd communicate things to do or
things to avaoid doing.

You may also wish to contact the local Linux Users Group.  I know
there used to be a group called FLUX, Fredricton Linux Users Exchange
but it looks like it may be defunct now.
